ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies investigated an Albuquerque high school teacher’s Facebook post that she wanted to “kill” students but determined the teacher was just frustrated by a classroom prank.
The [auth] Sheriff’s Department says the Rio Grande High School teacher’s name isn’t being released because she wasn’t arrested or charged.
However, the teacher is now on paid leave and a school district’s discipline committee will consider her case.
Sheriff’s deputies’ reports say the teacher says she made the Facebook post because she was furious that a student had glued his shoes to the classroom floor and pulled up the tile.
A district administrator says the teacher told school officials that she never intended to harm students and didn’t think her Facebook post would be taken seriously.
